Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi everyone! My name is Callie and I am born and raised in Dallas, Texas. Would love to locate memorials for others and have others help our family as well.

******If you are related, a transfer will be made to you********

I will be happy maintain the memorial as well. Sadly, I have run into many volunteers that are down right mean about transfers. I am a volunteer to the public and would like to stay that way. If you find a mistake on any memorial, please post an edit and I will be glad to update. I appreciate all and any help or advice anyone can offer to make to help me or others grow in our volunteer work.

My family names are : Tackett, Lesley, Eason, Renfro, Stafford, Russell, Rosson,Wright, Jones and Guy (and a few others)

Callie I am working on the Russell family and find you are related. I will be happy to share. Your line is Hubert Lester Sr and Lenora Guy. Lenora is daughter of Cavasor Guy and Lora Russell. Lora is daughter of Rev. Cyrus W. Andrew Russell and Mary Jane Kizer. Cyrus Andrew is son of Rev.Thomas Sidney White Russell and Mary Patience Cooke. My great grandfather was John David Morrow Russell a brother to Cyrus Andrew. I just got the Russell line back one more generation after years of my mother and I being stuck on Thomas S W Russell father David born 1767. I will be happy to share. You can contact me at

107522559 Elijah James Lesley
I read the earlier comments about the mother of Elijah James.

The mother of EJ is a different Martha Truss. The correct one:

Martha Ann Truss b.1834 AL, d. bef 1788 AL. Her parents were James Truss (1799-1882) and Priscilla Dulaney (1799-1870). She was first married to Wiley Helton (b. 1817) and then to EJ.

There is a lot of information in The St. Clair Co Alabama Heritage Book abt the Truss Family which is the Family that moved to Texas . This is who the city of Trussville is named after. you may be able to find some info from the Archives in Ashville , Al., St. Clair Co., AL. or You may be able to get some information from the creators of some of the Truss memorials , both here and in Texas. I looked and they are really good. IfI can be of any help , just let Me know.

Martha Cordelia Coleman Truss
Martha Cordelia Coleman Truss Oct. 25, 1838 - Jun. 6, 1918 , F.A.G. # 11860110 is not the Mother of Enos Vance Lesley (1866 - 1957)*.F.A.G.# 107522559 .
Her maiden name is Coleman not Truss. She was married to Maj. James D. Truss (1830 - 1899), F.A.G.# 41931615.
She and James had a son , William Coleman Truss (1857 - 1887),F.A.G. # 11860132 .
Your Enos was 9 years younger than The Truss son and Martha & James were married & lived together until 1899 at the time of James Truss death.They are buried side by side with very old matching tombstones ,
To be the Mother of Enos , Martha would have had to had him while married to James Truss
The mother of Enos is most likely the same as the mother of,
George W Lesley (1880 - 1949)*
Alfred Sileonie Lesley (1883 - 1972)*
Samuel Matthew Lesley (1886 - 1970)*
Jerry Luther Lesley (1888 - 1949)*
I sent You a request to unlink Your memorial and also explained that some of the Truss Family moved to Texas and they did have a daughter named Elizabeth abt the same age as Martha Coleman Truss. Please unlink Your Enos Truss from Martha Coleman Truss

Mary Elizabeth Burks Renfro
Hi Callie!

Here is my Find A Grave number and I would love it if you would transfer Mary Elizabeth Burks Renfro (Find A Grave Memorial# 64827160) to me. Mary Elizabeth Burks Renfro is my 2nd Great Grandmother.

Looking forward to being in touch about our common ancestors! I know we have communicated in the past regarding some other connections. And, I believe you told me that your mother is a member of the DAR, as am I!

Hi Callie,
I am a new member to Find A Grave, and am trying to put together a family tree before it's too late. I found your name on the grave information on the Wynnville Cemetary site for Thomas Marion Jones (1827-1880) who is my GG grandfather. I would really appreciate any other info and/or photos you might have on that family. I also have some photos you might be interested in.
